Together with the ambition to become the best online shop there ever was and ever will be, comes the great challenge of staying productive while scaling up from a small number of scrum teams to over 50+ teams. New software architecture, new responsibilities and an ever increasing focus on shipping new software quickly poses everyone involved with the question: “How can I do this (faster), without breaking anything and even improving our quality?”.

With all teams depending on each others services it can be tempting to try and test everything on a shared, production-like environment.

In this webinar we will show you how we’ve found more value in isolation, while still integrating as early as possible. Let’s dive into the reasons that made us initiate this change, our technical and organisational approach and the results.

 

Key Takeaways:

  1. Focus on speeding up testing as much as possible in isolation makes you go faster and improves the software quality.
  2. Lessons learned on how to change the way of working/thinking of 50+ scrum teams.
  3. Organizational changes we made to really scale up and deploy faster to production.
